Jerusalem, Israel - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas wrote a letter in lieu of keeping an appointment to meet with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  The letter was delivered to Netanyahu on Tuesday, although both sides had little hope of any peace resolutions. 

After canceling his meeting with Israel's Prime Minister, Abbas had his letter delivered to Netanyahu by chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat.  Netanyahu's staff said he would respond in writing within two weeks.  The letter reiterated Palestinian demands for restarting peace talks, including an end to Jewish settlement building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and acceptance of the pre-1967 borders, as the foundation of a two-state solution.  Israel's position is that talks should begin without preconditions, reported 

The conditions laid out by Palestinians are absurd.  Those preconditions are akin to Mexico launching bombs into the US daily (as the Palestinians do to Israel), demanding territories acquired by the US during the US-Mexico war of 1848, including California, Texas and New Mexico, and further demands that the US do no building in Washington DC, and to relinquish half of DC to Mexico (as the Palestinians demand East Jerusalem)!  Absurd, right? 

Did you know that the Bible tells about this ancient battle over Jerusalem, as well as the outcome?  Yes, you can read all about it in Ezekiel 36-39.  These passages are a few examples (God speaks to Ezekiel): "Son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say, Mountains of Israel, hear the Word of the Lord: Thus saith the Lord God, Because the enemy said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are our possession (namely Mount Moriah [Temple Mount] and the Mount of Olives), prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God, because they have made you desolate and swallowed you up on every side, that you might be a possession to the residue of the heathen, and you are taken up in the lips of talkers (railings against Israel - like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran, as he says he is going to wipe Israel off the face of the map) and are an infamy of the people (the battles between the Muslim Arab-Palestinians and Jews over the land of Israel are infamous); therefore, you mountains of Israel, hear the Word of the Lord GOD, thus saith the Lord GOD...Surely in the fire of My jealousy I have spoken against the residue of the heathen (who acts like heathens, the Palestinians or Israelis?), against all Idumea, who have appointed My land (Israel) into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.  Prophesy concerning the land of Israel..., Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and in My fury, because you have borne the shame of the heathen" Ezekiel 36:1-6.  If you compare the Palestinians, who throw rocks at the Jews from the Temple Mount and who throw more rocks at Jews traveling near Gaza, compared to the Israelis, who hardly defend themselves against the barrage of rockets launched into Israel on a near daily basis, in addition to the rock throwing, which group appears to be heathens?  That's right, God told Ezekiel to prophesy against the Palestinians (the heathens), who consistently declare that Israel belongs to them! 

Ezekiel chapters 36 through 39 continue to relay GOD's anger and wrath toward those who oppress Israel and claim the land that God gave to His people Israel.  By the time you get to chapter 38, the Lord returns to defeat all of the enemies surrounding Israel, who come against Jerusalem to battle.  Guess who wins?  Are you ready for the Lord's return and His just judgment?  If not, please visit the How Can I Be Saved page of this website.  There is no time to lose.  The last days prophesies are being fulfilled right before our eyes!
